Agent confirms Arsenal interest in Amadou Diawara

Recent reports have linked Arsenal with a move for Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara and the player’s agent has spoken concerning the reported interest.

The Guinea international was impressive for Roma in the 2019/20 campaign at the Stadio Olimpico and could be an ideal signing for the Gunners in a position where they’re facing challenges.

In a chat with Tuttomercatoweb, his agent Daniele Piraino confirmed that Arsenal are one of the clubs that have shown admiration for his client and a recent report from the Daily Express claimed that the North London outfit were keen on him and that he could leave this summer if a bid of around £27million is tabled.

This disclosure from Diawara’s agent is sure to please some Arsenal fans although the player is flattered by the reported interest from the Premier League giants. Regardless, it appears that there is the potential for a positive outcome at the end with regard to this move.

In a chat about the future of the 23-year-old with Tuttomercatoweb, Piraino said: “Diawara is at a top club like Roma, where he is happy, as there is enthusiasm around the new owners.

“However, he is also liked by many clubs in England, including Arsenal.

“Being linked with certain clubs is pleasing for him, as these are prestigious sides.

“Amadou is concentrated on football and his career.”

Mikel Arteta and his men won the FA Community Shield during the weekend after beating Liverpool on penalties at Wembley. The game ended 1 all at Fulltime with Arsenal taking the lead through a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal in the opening stages of the game.

Minamino scored the equalizer for Jurgen Klopp’s men although they fell short on penalties to give Mikel Arteta his second silverware in juts a few weeks.

Regardless, Arsenal are in need of midfield reinforcements this summer after finishing 8th in the Premier League last season and Diaware seems like he would be an upgrade on the likes of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.
